At the end of 2012, Open Repository announced an agreement with five participating Galileo Knowledge Repository member institutions based in Georgia, USA, to build and host their institutional repositories. Consequently, Albany State University College of Coastal Georgia, Georgia Gwinnett College, Georgia Regents University and Dalton State College joined Open Repository’s diverse global client-base.
In March 2015, we’re pleased to announce that yet another Georgia-based institution has joined the existing group of Galileo Knowledge Repositories being hosted and operated by Open Repository. With a diverse student body, Savannah State University is described as the oldest public HBCU institution in Georgia. The Open Repository team is working with Autumn Johnson and colleagues at the Asa H. Gordon Library to implement the new repository platform.
All Georgia Knowledge Repositories, including those hosted by Open Repository can also be viewed and searched via a shared portal http://gaknowledge.org We encourage readers to visit and utilize this valuable shared-resource.
